NB Commentary: I enter this discussion kicking and screaming and swearing to myself that I am not, and I mean, am not gonna fall prey to the hype.

I recently saw a documentary of the Black Panther Party that aired at the E Street Cinema in Washington, DC. It was the most compelling and accurate portrayal of the organization that I have seen. Many have sought to demonize the young Black activists and their efforts have gone largely unrecognized. The documentary is a collection of news clips and interviews with authentic voices.

The East Coast is known as the birth place of Hip Hop. The next rapper up to bat is Javin Copeland a/k/a Chase$tacks, born August 12th with the heart of a lion.
